A note from filmmaker and director Jean Mercier:
As some people like to watch this movie in a group, if there is a discussion subject that would come to my mind it would be:

"My body might be getting older, but my heart is not! I am still a full participant in this society, and I can make the world a better place with all I know, with every single day and moment that I am so gracefully granted! So, I will reach out and stay a part of my friends, family, and community's life, even if I have to do it against all odds, and will love it in every way as much as possible."
